BREAKING: Justice correspondent Elie Mystal warns that Manchin and Sinema are “the white people that Martin Luther King Jr. warned us about” and they have no “urgency, commitment or integrity” when it comes to the “progress of justice.” RT IF YOU THINK MYSTAL NAILED IT!
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel says she believes the 16 Republicans who submitted forged 2020 election documents violated both state and federal laws.
"This really is just one piece of a much larger puzzle involving not just Michigan, but multiple other states." @MSNBC
With his one drop box location rule, LaRose maximized congestion at early vote locations he knows are disproportionately utilized by voters of color.
He lied about why.
Then the lie was proven in court.
Then he still did it.
And now other states are doing the same thing.
Would you help me tweet this around the world?
But kindness does not = justice
But civility is not the humane response to injustice
Love is essential
But love is not a passive, weeping bystander
Love puts in work.
1. This will be a thread of corporations that are "honoring" MLK Jr on Twitter today but donated to the @NRSC in the last year, supporting a caucus that is filibustering voting rights and a chair (@SenRickScott) who voted to overturn the last election

Georgetown Prep requires masks, vaccinations, AND they went virtual for a week in December. They also require weekly testing of any unvaccinated students, as well as testing of any student returning to campus. Weird that @GlennYoungkin wants that for HIS kids, but not yours.
HEADS UP ON SCHOOL BOARDS!
Most towns have rolling school board elections every year. Now is the time to start recruiting and marking the day to vote on your calendar. The MAGA/far-right/billionaires are organizing around these boards. Don’t let them pull a Youngkin in your town!
When MLK Jr warned about "moderate" white voters/politicians, he was talking about people like Manchin and Sinema; completely willing to say the right thing but unwilling to actually do the right thing.
“I think the tragedy is that we have a Congress with a Senate that has a minority of misguided senators who will use the filibuster to keep the majority of people from even voting.” —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1963
Doomers are telling you BBB and Voting Rights bills are dead.
President Biden, VP Harris, Majority Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, and the entire Democratic caucus are still working on these bills. They haven't stopped. Neither should you.
Think about who wants you to give up.
Let's honor Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy by working to protect the right of every American to vote.
"The denial of this sacred right is a tragic betrayal of the highest mandates of our democratic tradition,” he said in 1957. It was true then and it's true now.
.@GlennYoungkin's children go to school in Maryland. I'm not going to shame anyone for their school choices, but #Virginia parents should know. The fleece vests and folksy charm are an act--he is NOT one of us.
Every reporter that interviews @GlennYoungkin needs to ask him his position on Georgetown Prep’s mask and vaccine mandates since that’s where his kids go in DC and he’s never said a peep about it. He’s cool with our kids getting sick for his MAGA points…just not his.
Nearly 60 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. articulated a vision of freedom, equality, & opportunity in his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
He inspired hope in our nation.
And that beacon of hope & liberty still burns bright in Texas.
